The Gainsborough Arms
Locals love this congenial old country pub, with its cosy fireplace that crackles away in winter and chickens running around outside, and they and the hospitable staff always offer a friendly welcome to newcomers and passers-by. The Gainsborough Arms is also the pub of choice for Milbourne Football Club thanks to the friendly, community atmosphere and the Sky and BT sports on show. There is plenty of other entertainment too, including a pool table and juke box, both free on Wednesdays, and a darts board and kids’ play area. The menu features traditional pub favourites including steak, a mixed grill, and hunter’s chicken. The prawns and mussels in white wine and garlic sauce come highly recommended as a starter, lamb shank is a popular main course, and the ice cream sundae is an unmissable dessert. Accompany your meal with a glass of wine and sit back to enjoy the atmosphere of this village gem.
